I'm always astonished by the amount of pop tunes for instance that users choose to mark "public domain" or with some inappropriate CC license after they ripped them from a commercial CD or purchased them from a d/l service, and then slapped up at OM or IA. So a little extra text descrip can go a long way to helping disambiguate your "real" stuff from all that mess! Plus, a good description can also make more people want to check out your compositions.

EDIT: Found a related topic over there:
http://www.ourmedia.org/node/159106
(that also mentions the likelihood of stuff they're unsure about getting darkened by accident, and an appeal mechanism)

Also, to cut down on the underlying problem that leads to some accidents: http://www.ourmedia.org/node/220406

I think the problem was you uploaded it through ourmedia. That has to be the worst interface ever. All the licensing information, author, uploader, even the file types are lost when creted here. You have to go into every item and put your name in as creator, re enter all the keywords etc... none of it comes over so the mods here did not see it was an original CC licensed work becaue it's in the meta under custom fields because someone at ourmedia does not understand how to match field id's... so it was not censorship or archive's fault. It was ourmedia's intereface. The reverse is true also, anything uploaded here an created there is listed as public domain and has comments deactivate. Lastly, if you add jpg to the item here, that is the file that transfers to the node at ourmedia so your song will be a picture over there...

toodles!
